Fritter Medley

(Served here with cheese and apple slices)

Okay, trying to come of with a fancier way of saying "Leftover Balls" which my Mom informed me was not glamorous by any stretch of the imagination. This is a fun technique to stretch a serving of leftovers. Last night I made Easy Butter Dill Salmon with Roasted Asparagus and Zucchini Rice. Today I turned that into Fritters for lunch. You could do the same thing with a chicken breast, broccoli and rice from the night before too (or whatever).

1 leftover salmon filet
6-8 leftover roasted aspargus spears
1/2 cup leftover zucchini rice
1/2 -1 cup of chicken broth (or water)
2 tbsp mayonnaise (for binder)
1 piece of bread
1 cup panko bread crumbs
cooking spray

This what I had leftover, you can use what you have leftover and adjust the amounts. In a small food processor (I love my Magic Bullet!) Grind up a piece of bread. Put it a small mixing bowl. Blend fish, asparagus, rice and chicken broth in blender next. Pour in the mixing bowl with the bread crumbs. Add mayonnaise. Stir, should be thick enough to form small balls. You can add more bread crumbs to thicken or a bit more broth to loosen. Form balls, roll in panko crumbs and lay on a cookie sheet. Spray liberally with cooking spray. Broil on HI for 5 minutes, flip and broil for another 5 minutes until crispy and brown. The ingredients are all cooked, so you are just browning the bread. I made 12 balls. Which is several meals for my toddlers or one more meal for the family!
